Hebden Bridge to Salterhebble

13:30 - 17:00

A long walk along the canal (mostly) from Hebden Bridge through Sowerby Bridge  to Salterhebble lock.

A very hot day made it hard going.
A bus to Halifax and the reliable 576 service to Roper Lane bottom, to walk home completed the day out.


Swifts heard overhead at Hebden, but not seen.

Nothing out of the ordinary again today I'm afraid.
Many, may Canada Geese with Goslings in tow.
Grey Wagtail, 3 Heron.
(14:45 Luddenden Foot).
2 Mistle Thrush, 2 Song Thrush, Grey Wagtail nesting in a wall.
3 Swift (seen).
Great Spotted Woodpecker called once.
(15:45 Sowerby Bridge).
Swifts heard not seen.
Heron, singing Blackcap.
17:00 Salterhebble - a butty by the canal!
17:45 Roper Lane.
18:35 Home.

I stood looking at these 2 interesting holes but noting entered or exited them
